The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.
WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR KYBELLA?
Adults over the age of 21 who are medically healthy and who are not allergic to the active ingredients in the formula of this treatment are generally ideal candidates. This treatment is ideal for those who have a moderate amount of unwanted fat beneath the chin, particularly those who have struggled to get rid of this fat with traditional means.
Additionally, candidates for this treatment are not currently pregnant or breastfeeding. The best candidates are those who would prefer to use a non-surgical treatment to reduce under-chin fat, especially if they are not qualified or interested in cosmetic surgeries such as liposuction. We will determine your candidacy for this treatment at your consultation, either in person or virtually.
